, kentucky, southeast of louisville for tonight's debate between joe biden and pauryan. the vice president and the congressman from wisconsin. this will be the only meeting of these two men who do know each other and have dealt with each other often in washington. paul ryan, in fact, said today he loves joe biden, he just disagrees with him. before this even gets under way, this debate sets the record for the broadest age disparity of any debate. the vice president is 69. congressman ryan is 42. the chance of real fireworks in that hall tonight was increased after the last debate, when an energized mitt romney got the better of the president, as mr. obama all but later admitted in an interview. it is cold in the venue again, a mutually agreed-upon temperature of 65, to enforce the post-nixon political adage, never let them see you sweat. tonight the candidates will be seated. it will all be very close. they'll be separated only by our moderator tonight. she is martha raddatz, senior foreign affairs correspondent for abc news, and there's pressure on her as well after all the talk about the

place? but watch out for joe biden. middle class, beer drinking joe biden. find they motional middle class moment and say paul ryan, don't you know the people you are going to hurt? >> and paul, to your point, if they attack, you want them -- they both should be attacking upwards. >> they'll either both attack up, or, and this is bad for the principals, they may just get along having a civil conversation, not helping president obama or mitt romney. so they have to be contentious toward the guy at the top. >> one thing that hasn't been talked about so far is poor people. one of the things -- we talk about the middle class being destroyed. it's important that we remember that paul ryan actually has something to say about poor people. he wants to take away nutritionaprograms, i think if you want to talk about what's happening in scranton, what will help people in scranton is not what paul ryan is talking about. >> the debate is about to start. wolf? >> only a few seconds away from the start of the debate. a 42-year-old republican vice presidential nominee, a 69-year-old sitting vice pre
chairs. it starts in moments. >> the debate between vice-president joe biden and congressman paul ryan is set to start in just seconds. i'm bret baier, live inside the debate hall. >> i'm megyn kelly inside the spin room, after the debate, to try to convince you that their side won. team obottomma was noticeibly absent after a less than stellar response from president obama. >> the strategy for vice-president biden is to drive a wedge in between paul ryan and governor romney, to get in between the policy positions so that, essentially, they're setting up vice-president biden would be setting up his boss before the next debate. in other words, to put governor romney back on his heels before that town hall debate in new york. >> one of the dynamics we will be watching is the considerable age difference, between the two men, about 30 years. we talked about how when vice-president biden had already gotten married and graduated from college and finished law school, that's when paul ryan was born. so we will see how age and the difference plays in this debate tonight, as we watch things abou
it for the super wealthy. it's about time they take responsibility. >> mr. ryan? >> joe and i are from similar towns. he's from scranton, pennsylvania. i'm from janesville, wisconsin. you know what the unemployment rate in scranton is? it's 10%. the day you came into office it was 8.5%. that's how it's going all around america. >> that's not how it is, it's going down. >> did they inherit a tough situation? absolutely. but we're going in the wrong direction. look at where we are. the economy is barely limping along. it's growing at 1.3%. that's slower than last year and last year was slower than the year before. job growth in september was slower than it was in august and august was slower than july. we're heading in the wrong direction. 23 million americans are struggling for work today. 15% of americans are living in poverty today. this is not what a real recovery looks like. we need real reforms and that's what we're proposing. it's a five point plan. get america energy independent by the end of the decade. help people that are hurting get the skills to get the job they want. make trade wor
president joe biden whose experience goes back with the bidding goes back 40 years. the really have much of an impact but tonight could be the big exception. gov. mitt romney announced in the polls after his strong performance. vice-president biden will likely try to make some lost ground up. tonight's topic, domestic and foreign possibilitpolicy. tonight will be about the economy. an issue that the pundits say will likely decide this election. each campaign offers a vastly different approach to tackling the tough issues including how to lower the nation's 7.8% unemployment rate and how to rein in the national debt that tops $16 trillion. each nominee has 90 minutes to convince the voters that his to get is the best. from abcs moderator is marth news. >> good evening and welcome to the first and only vice- presidential debate of 2012. sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. i am honored to moderate this debate between two men who have dedicated much of their lives to public service. tonight's debate is divided between divided and domestic foreign-policy issues and i will mov
. right now, as we welcome, a vice president joe biden and congressmen paul ryan. [applause] >> good evening, gentlemen. it is an honored to be here with both of you. i would like to begin with libya. on a rather somber note, one month ago tonight on the anniversary of 9/11, ambassador stevens and three other brave americans were killed in a terrorist attack in benghazi. the state department has made clear there were no protesters there. it was a preplanned assault by heavily armed men. massivehis a intelligence failure? >> chris stevens was one of our best. we will find and bring to justice the men who did this. we will get to the bottom of it and whatever the facts lead us, we will make clear, whatever mistakes were made will not be made again. you should take a look at his most important responsibility. that is caring for the national security of the country. take a look at how he has handled the issues of the day. on iraq, the president has said he would end the war. governor romney said that was a tragic mistake. we should have left 30,000 troops there. with regard to afghanista
we get into this debate? >> i'm just looking, becky, for how aggressively lly joe biden after things his boss left on the table last week, bain capital, 47% video, auto bailout and how aggressively he pursues women voters raising the romney/ryan record on abortion and other issues related to women. >> do you think the onus is more on biden to offense? ryan the luxury of sitting back and riding the momentum that's happened since the first debate? >> i think biden does need to go on office but to some degree the bar is higher for paul ryan. in these guys tie which i think they will do it will be a wash, biden has succeeded in stemming the bleeding from the democratic base. and so to that degree, paul can't just go out and be equal to biden. he has to go out and be better than biden. >> he has to be on message. team romney is on a roll, is on a roll and the last week he's on a roll in the polls. that's why i'm saying ryan, he's got to be polite and respectful but on message and i believe economic growth and jobs, is the message. >> he has to have his youth. needs to let his youth take a
into this, one of the reasons this is going to be a very highly watched debate is because of joe biden's reputation for being an unscripted fun to watch guy. is that something when you're prepping one of these guys you want to rein in or let him let loose with? >> no doubt. go in there with a strategy, want the candidate to be focused on executing that strategy. definitely don't want to walk out there and have improv at the debate. >> we've had the ryan campaign said they did not consult sarah palin but they did consult dan quayle. in terms of prepping for this debate. at least dan quayle says that he was consulted in preparing for this debate tonight. the debate is about now to begin. again, one of the interesting things about tonight is the moderator is an unconventional choice. the moderator is martha raddatz, a very, very well respected, well traveled, hard nosed serious reporter. she's the senior foreign affairs correspondent at abc. because of that, and because of the wide open format of tonight's structure of the debate, we do expect that there will be questions tonight on forei
